Type 1, 2 and 3 systems
Most engineers designing systems, ROWP planners, and installers do not do maintenance.
We do maintenance on systems we install and many others. Doing maintenance teaches us lessons. We get to see on an ongoing basis the operation and performance of the wide variety of systems we install. This has two great benefits: we learn which systems work best under which circumstances (this feeds into our designs) and we learn how to design our systems to make maintenance easier and more cost-effective.
CSSi maintains all types of onsite sewage systems with any type of treatment plant.
We have a dedicated maintenance van with three different sewer pipe cameras. We also have auger rooting snakes and all the equipment needed to trouble shoot.
If CSSi designs and installs the system, we will produce a detailed operation and maintenance manual. If CSSi has not designed the system, we can provide maintenance for the system following someone else’s specific maintenance plan, or we can prepare a new operation and maintenance manual if a good plan does not exist.
Maintenance is one of those things in life that we often put off because of the expense. This seems to be true for many things including our health (not exercising regularly and eating too many carbohydrates), our vehicles (skipping oil changes), our computers (anti-virus, anti-spyware checks), our home furnaces (not cleaning the air filters). Maintenance of an onsite sewage system is one more of those things that must be done regularly or you can expect your system to fail prematurely.
The prudent home owners are finding that when a new system is installed it is wise to sign up for a maintenance contract.
